Getting in the mood.
I have to be in the right mood to write. I don't understand authors who can just push out book after book. It's like they have a magic reservoir of words they get to just dip into whenever they want. I mean I am impressed with Nora Roberts and authors like Christine Feehan, but really how do they do it?
Today I am arguing with my spouse. When things in my world are off, writing becomes impossible. I do find that funny, however, when I am in this odd place. You see, when my better half is mad at me we don't talk. Because we are not speaking to each other, I have all the time I want to write. But because we are not getting along I cant put down a single word. When we are happy with each other then I spend my spare time chatting happily instead of writing. I should be completely shocked I have written two books at all.
The real problem I'm having today is the fact that I am supposed to be writing a sex scene. Not feeling it at all. Getting glared at all day doesn't start my engine. My house is downright frosty. Today would be a great day to have a couple of my characters kill someone. To bad they're all getting along.
My newest book I just started writing a few weeks ago. I have about 38,000 words done. I think it is just going to have to wait until I get make-up sex. Either that or I make Margo (My main female character) kill everyone and then just go on alone into the world.
That would be a crap romance novel.
